Field Watchers

Grades 2-5 • September-October & April- May • This program is free to the first 2,500 registered students through the generous support of the Illinois Soybean Association 
Field Watchers teaches about the history of agriculture and the importance of emerging technologies in the industry. The goal of the Field Watchers program is to connect 2nd-5th grade students to farmers in Illinois while providing inquiry-based STEM learning and experimentation in agronomy and coding. Everyone will become “Field Watchers” learning about soybean plants, virtually connecting to “Field Partner” farmers, and potting a soybean plant. The program continues as students monitor their plants and connect remotely to learn from Field Partner farmers.
